But I think it's fixed now. I hope.
I had to make some of my own foundations, no big deal right? So I thought. I traced the template onto the muslin with ease. (see picture below)
When I got 5 of these done, SOMETHING didn't look right. I rotated, flipped upside down, and even redrew my lines TWICE! Then it hit me. After re-reading Raymond's blog post on foundation piecing, I needed 9 inch squares not the 6 inch that I cut.
Now I'm working with pieces like this...
This size SHOULD help in constructing the blocks. I hope to start that Monday. As for now, I have enough muslin that this little "learning experiment" won't affect my supply! I just hope my pen holds out.
FYI the pen I use is a Bic Mark It ultra fine point permanent marker.
